In the movie The Magnificent Seven, the main character Sam Chisholm or Chris Adams (depending which version you saw), recruits six desperados to defeat the evil gunslinger. Even though there isn’t an evil cowboy loose in Lake Tahoe to fight, there is a 72-mile adventure to be tackled as part of the Lake Tahoe Relay. That’s no slouch of a battle to win!
